Sustainable Series

The Scott Arboretum offers a series of lectures, seminars, and workshops that focus on sustainable practices in the garden. Participants learn how to protect our planet’s natural systems, become proper land stewards, and encourage wildlife in the garden. Our goal is to have more gardeners adopt sustainable practices in every facet of their home gardens.

Look for the Sustainable Logo:

on the website calendar and in the Schedule of Events to indictate that a program is a part of the Sustainable Series.


We hope you will join us for the upcoming courses in our Sustainable Series:
